Private Dining


Snack Points

Good food is part of our Cretan DNA. Vine-ripened grapes and flavourful figs, picked at the height of freshness and still warm from the strong Cretan sun. Golden olive oil. Crunchy barley rusks and creamy, salty feta cheese. Here, it’s not just a tomato—it’s a tomato grown to peak ripeness under the Cretan sun. Sustainable, local, and organic—whether you’re tucking into roasted lamb on a bed of greens, or squid with feta sauce, each meal is a special one to remember.
